This is a gorgeous lime green hand-carved soft jade bowl.  Silver / nickel composite metal forms the scroll work with detailed dragons around bowl.  Elsewhere on the lid are a phoenix and dragon scroll work plus other designs.  A mythical Qilin stands on top of the lid.  Note the 5 frogs around the edge.

Stamped on the bottom.

Circa early- to mid- 1900s, this is one of my favorite censers.  In very good condition with superb workmanship.

Stand not included.
